We generally allow 45 minutes for customers to clear Passport Control and Baggage Reclaim. We may allow more time when we think the airport may be busy.
If you are not at the bus bay at Lyon Airport on time, we can wait for you but we may not be able to wait longer than 15 minutes after your bus’ scheduled departure time. After that, if we have a later service that day, you can jump on that for free is there is room. We leave empty seats on all our services for exactly this reason.
Ben’s Bus monitors flight arrival times so you don’t need to contact us if you are delayed. Our team will be busy trying to accommodate you on another service. Or they may be holding the bus back. On Saturdays, when you come out of Arrivals, just find our rep and they will update you. On other days, please call the number on your eTicket.
The journey between Lyon Airport and Rochetaillee usually takes about 1 hour 50 minutes in normal traffic. From Rochetaillee to Vaujany in a taxi takes a further 25 minutes.
